Due to the coronavirus, CCS 2020 has been cancelled. Please contact the Youth/Young Adult Ministries office with questions.

Christian Citizenship Seminar (CCS) provides high school aged students the chance to explore the relationship between faith and a particular political issue, and then act from a faith perspective regarding that issue.

This year’s Christian Citizenship Seminar will focus on pursuing economic justice.

Who is eligible to attend?

All high school youth and their adult advisors are eligible to attend the seminar. Churches are strongly encouraged to send an advisor with their youth, even if only one or two youth attend. Churches are required to send one advisor for every four youth.

Registration is limited to the first 60 participants. Registration opens 12/2 at 10 a.m. central time.

What is the cost?

The $450 registration fee includes:

  • Event programming
  • Lodging for five nights
  • 2 dinner meals, one in New York City and one in Washington D.C.
  • Transportation from New York to Washington D.C.

Note: Each participant will need to bring additional money for most meals, sightseeing, personal expenses, and subway/taxi fares.
